This month, we welcome back Marta Rivera for more of her meal plans. Marta is a trained chef, mom of twins, and wife to a newly-retired soldier!
For me, the week leading up to most holidays is filled with bulk cooking, especially if I’m hosting!
For Independence Day next week, I’m going to open my home to friends. To maximize my time, I’m going to prep small bites for the party from dinner recipes I’m serving my family this week.
I’m a huge fan of freezer-meals and doubling recipes for the future parties, or to just make family dinner plans easier on me! I’ll save half of the Slow Cooker Mexican Pulled Pork for nachos, and top it with extra relish from the Hot Dogs with Pineapple Bacon Relish.
Planning ahead helps me enjoy the festivities while feeding our guests amazing dishes.
